Angela Merkel is calling for tougher laws on regulating migrants after a string of New Year’s Eve sex attacks and robberies in Cologne.
The attacks were largely blamed on foreigners and police confirmed of the 31 men questioned so far, 18 were asylum seekers.
Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party wants to:

- Strengthen police powers to conduct checks of identity papers
As many as 1,000 men of “Arab or North African descent” allegedly groped women near the city’s main train station.
More than 100 women reported they had been threatened, robbed or molested in the area.
While at least one woman claimed she was gang raped.
